The schedule also contains several recurring theme nights, most notably for the team’s seven Wednesday games, which will feature $1 Bud Lights and a free ticket voucher for all fans in attendance (courtesy of Farm Bureau) if the Checkers win that game. Families can receive a 40 percent discount on groups of four tickets for seven select Family Nights, while college students can save on tickets for seven College Nights presented by Hendrick Acura.

The Checkers are offering a special ticket package and holding a pregame party for their St. Patrick’s Day game on Friday, March 17. For $25 fans can get one game ticket, two Bud Lights and a $10 merchandise certificate. For more detail, click here.

Single game tickets start at $12 and are available online via and at the Bojangles’ Coliseum box office.
